Bus and Coach Services From Invercargill

Invercargill (Waihōpai in Māori) (Pop 48,300) is the southern most and western most city in New Zealand. It is the commercial centre of the Southland region.

Invercargill lies in the heart of the wide expanse of the Southland Plains on the Oreti or New River some 18 km north of Bluff, which is the southernmost town in the South Island.

Invercargill sits amid rich farmland that is bordered by large areas of conservation land and marine reserves, including Fiordland National Park covering the south-west corner of the South Island.

Built in the late 19th and early 20th century, its wide streets and century old buildings give the visitor a unique feeling of stepping back in time to when business was conducted in a more sedate and considered manner and the streets were paved with Otago gold.

Invercargill is located 221 kms southwest of Dunedin and is the gateway to Stewart Island and Fiordland National Park.

Mainly of scottish origin, Invercargill is a service centre for the rich Southland farmlands. It is a commercial centre and can be used as a base for exploring the other areas of Southland, Fiordland, the Catlins Coast and Stewart Island.
